This project was slightly unusual for us, as it involved fitting a new wooden floor in an extension to match an existing oak wooden floor in the original part of the house. As wood flooring is such a long-lasting material, with good workmanship, we were able to match the two floors, so it was impossible to tell them apart.
Band sawn engineered hardwood flooring isn’t an obvious choice when it comes to choosing a new floor, but with the markings running across the planks, it means that it’s a floor with plenty of character and personality. With a nod to the flooring of the past, this style of wood flooring creates a statement floor with a rustic, traditional feel.
We always like to create something really special when fitting our wooden floors and this project exceeded our client’s expectations. They wanted something a little different, that would stand out from the norm. As the rooms were such a good size, we recommended a random width hardwood engineered oak floor.
Did you know that you can achieve the look of a brushed wooden floor, without actually brushing the surface of the wood? This is exactly what we did for a project in a Victorian home in Shepherd’s Bush, London. The client was delighted with the end result, especially as our methods make the floor so easy to maintain.
For our latest project we removed a damaged jatoba wooden floor from a house in Wimbledon, replacing it with a lighter pre-oiled oak floor. The new flooring was fitted in two reception rooms, three flights of curving stairs and the landings.
Fitting a wooden floor requires great skill, which is learnt over time. Some homeowners let their builder fit their new floor as part of a renovation project but, although they may have some of the skills required, it’s the details that can elevate a floor and make all the difference.
This project in a Victorian flat conversion took an interesting mix and match approach, combining oak hardwood flooring with oak chevron parquet. As the same species of engineered wood was used in the same white finish, the two different floors work beautifully together. Each floor defines its own space, giving the rooms their own identity and introducing plenty of pattern along the way.
The floor was carefully chosen by our clients which also had specific requirements for the design features. Our technical and aesthetic advice was taken also.
